Death penalty for sexually assaulted children

Jiang Qibo, a member of the judicial committee of the Supreme People’s court, said on December 18 that from January to November this year, 4159 cases of child molestation were tried in the first instance by courts across the country. In July this year, a criminal who raped a young girl to death was sentenced to death.
In view of the frequent situation of sexual assault on children, such as rape and indecency, the people’s court insists on the position of zero tolerance, and resolutely punishes the death penalty according to law for the cases of sexual assault on children with extremely bad nature, circumstances and serious consequences.
